I was looking for a way to have cute titles for bbpress users, and stars. I tried other complicated rating systems like BadgeOS and myCred which have a learning curve and too many bells and whistles I didn't need. This plugin is very quick to understand and implement. THANK YOU for this, I will be donating! 🙂

I've got a membership site of music teachers and I'd been searching FOR AGES regarding how to give people 'rank' based on their contributions. This plugin was incredibly easy to install and use and I didn't need to do any coding. I didn't need to muck around with WP user roles either - these sit alongside really nicely which means that you can still move people into moderator roles separately to this system (it doesn't affect their access roles in the forum). Definitely get this if you want to increase engagement in your forum!!
